Swedish Cupboard

Swedish Cupboard


An Antique Swedish Cupboard found here via Pinterest is the inspiration for an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® color palette of muted greens and soft lavenders. Use different shades of Chateau Grey by mixing with Old White and layering for a worn finish. Add Old White for highlights. Accent the trim and molding with subtle touches of Emile.

Consider painting the interior a custom color  with a mix of equal parts Chateau Grey and Emile. The result is a warm  complex taupe which will enhance both colors.

I like Annie Sloan Chalk Paint  for my craft and furniture projects, but for walls nothing compares to Pure & Original Fresco Lime Paint. I love the natural variations of shades and tones the lime creates within one paint color. You have to see how gorgeous it is! Checkout my most recent interior design make overs with Fresco. It can be purchased online at www.502paint.com



P.S  Pure and Original also makes a chalk based paint called Classico in 140 colors! Its amazing too!

thank you for sharing your thoughts and ways in which you achieved success. I am one year into painting so many different pieces with Annie Sloan chalk paint. I love transforming APs to showcase what might be featured with it. I am always searching for different ways to think about the use of color because it’s easy to get stuck in your old favorites!
I did all of my kitchen cupboards inside and out Aubusson blue with a wash of Versailles and the cupboard doors were Versailles all finished with clear and dark wax. Inside us Versailles with the front if the shelves in Aubusson. When I eventually post pics I’ll let you know.
My best to you!


Looking for a little of your expertise and directions on redoing my armoire to resemble the Swedish Cupboard 2014 on your website.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Step-by-step would be fantastic!
Thanks so much.
